Wellington bus drivers look forward to proposed living wage rule

From Checkpoint, 5:56 pm on 10 March 2021

A proposal is being put forward that would see all Wellington bus drivers paid at least the Living Wage.

Around half of all bus drivers in the region are currently paid below that threshold, some as low as $19 an hour.

It is still awaiting final approval, but already being heralded as a significant moment for bus drivers.

Our Wellington reporter Harry Lock and video journalist Dom Thomas have the story.
